Details Emerge on Why Nyanza Regional Commissioner Skipped Ruto's Homa Bay Event

It is now clear why so few Homa Bay County elected officials attended Sunday's ceremony, which was presided over by President William Ruto.

Among those reported missing were local governor Gladys Wanga and Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma, both of whom offered explanations.

Magu Mutindika, the regional commissioner for Nyanza, was also missing, despite the fact that he was one of the people who was considered to never miss such occasions.

He has, however, offered an explanation, stating that he was out of town and unable to take part, therefore he delegated his deputy to represent him.

It is clearly apparent that those who missed have some advantage because, according to insiders, the event was hurriedly organized for Saturday night, giving leaders little time to arrange for travel.

Wanga claimed to have found out about the gathering only a few hours before it started, by which time she had already made other plans. Kaluma also allegedly told Wanga that he had not been invited to the gathering and would not be attending.

"The president's protocol office should have informed me of his arrival. It gives out a bad impression, he said.

Local senator Moses Kajwang said he was not invited as well, denying accusations that he boycotted or missed the ceremony on purpose.

"Let there be no debate about the boycott. No invitation was sent to me, "said he.

It's crucial to remember that ODM leader Raila Odinga, Ruto's main opponent in the recently concluded race for the State House, still has strongholds in Homa Bay.
